Whiting Grizzly Capes and Saddles
Grizzly (or “grizzled”) feathers are both black and white. Generally, this characterized by black barring over white but sometimes by white barring over black. The classic Whiting grizzly hackle has the black and white barring fairly evenly spaced and the colors are distinct. The barring is in the shape of chevrons or the shape of a "V" , like a sergeant’s stripes. Some grizzly will have a imperfect barring; either the barring goes straight across the feather or is a bit staggered from one side of the stem to the other. There is light grizzly and dark grizzly hackle. Light grizzly is predominantly white with smallish black barring, and dark grizzly is mainly black with smallish white barring.
